We all know what it is like to be in stuck in an improv rut.

Doing the same kind of safe scene over and over again by making the same boring choices over and over again.

We are bored and we can only guess how the audience feels.

We know there is more out there. We just think we can not access it.

In six weeks you will experience what it is like to be part of ensemble and begin improvising some of your best scene work yet.

Going to place you could never imagined.
Places you only see in movies and plays.

This workshop is not for every one.

It takes commitment.

It takes trusting that the funny will come to you.

It takes believing your are enough.

If this is something you think you would be interested please read below.

I've never taken Jim's class, but he is a super funny dude with a ton of improv experience and every person I've run across that has taken his class raves about it. So there's that.

My two cents,

Justin
